Yes. It's a known problem that MS-DNS is buggy. Have you applied all
updates ?=20=20

If you really really MUST use wintendo-DNS, at least change to w2k.=20

Things that might influence your current problem that could be=20
affected by bind ;=20

transfer-format one-answer; in the option section could affect
your problems, also some versions of bind-8 seems not to play well
with ms-dns.

The easiest way out is to install freeBSD on the salve server. It will
solve all problems ( except for the iraq problem)
